Webinar: Distribution of Federal Spending
The Pew Charitable Trusts recently released, Federal Spending in the States 2004 to 2013, and found that the federal government spent $3.1 trillion in the states during its 2013 fiscal year. But the amount and composition of federal spending vary widely from state to state. As a result, federal budget decisions that increase or decrease different areas of spending affect each state differently. The distribution of federal spending provides important context for understanding the effect that federal fiscal policy has on the states, and subsequently on cities.
On Thursday December 11, NLC will host a webinar in partnership with Pew to share the results of the research and draw implications for cities, the city-state fiscal relationship and alternative local revenue streams. Register now!
